Introduce Yourself!

Hi everyone!

I write anything from creative non-fiction to poetry to short fiction. I worked on the editorial side of publishing for many years. I've also taken workshops at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Hunter College and the 92nd Street Y in NYC, The Writer's Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and Lighthouse Writers in Denver.

The biggest challenge I've come across as a writer -- working in the real world. I left publishing largely because it didn't pay nearly as much as other industries. Plus it had gotten way too commercial -- but I guess that's another subject entirely.

Anyways, looking forward to meeting you!
